Recently held (September 12th to 14th) at the Long Beach Convention Center was the 3-day 2019 California Craft Beer Summit produced by the California Craft Brewers Association.
“The Craft Beer Summit is possibly the most important event of the year for anyone who loves tasting beer or is interested in building their business in the craft beer industry.
“The three-day event launched with hands-on education, tastings, pairings, interactive exhibits and networking opportunities and concluded with the largest California craft beer festival hosted outdoors on the water in Long Beach at Marina Green Park. Unlimited tastings were offered from 170 breweries from across California pouring more than 500 beers of every style and variety.”
